We are still six months away from the debut of season 2 of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and now we’ve learned that season 3 is already in the works at the streaming service.
According to Variety, sources have confirmed that creator Jon Favreau has been “writing season 3 for a while,” and that the art department, led by Lucasfilm vice president and executive creative director Doug Chiang, has been creating concepts for Season 3 “for the past few weeks.”
“We’ve just started pre-production and are looking into further adventures for The Mandalorian in Season 3,” revealed one source.
In addition, the production design department reportedly began working on season 3 on April 20.
Production on Season 2 wrapped in early March, just before filming was halted around the world due to the pandemic.
Season 2 of The Mandalorian is set to premiere this October. Returning for season two are Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow as the Armorer, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon and Bill Burr as Mayfield. Newcomers to the series include WWE superstar Sasha Banks in an unknown role, Rosario Dawson as Jedi Ahsoka Tano and Michael Biehn as a bounty bunter from Mando’s past.
Jon Favreau also returns as executive producer/writer for the second season.
Earlier this week, Disney announced details of a brand-new eight-episode documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. This behind-the-scenes show follows Executive Producer Jon Favreau as he invites the cast and crew of The Mandalorian to share an inside look at the massively-popular show on Disney+. The new series debuts May 4th on the streaming service.
